Ben Affleck’s Mid-Life Crisis Phoenix Back Tattoo Is Real

March 18, 2018 / Posted by:

Remember Ben Affleck’s enormous “what am I even doing, why is nobody stopping me” phoenix rising from the ashes back tattoo that he told us was fake and for a movie? Turns out it was real. I think we all just got a little taste of what Jennifer Garner must have had to deal with for years; Ben Affleck lying straight to our faces!

Photos of Ben and his Triple Frontier co-stars Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac, and Garrett Hedlund rollicking on a beach in Hawaii have surfaced. And Ben’s bad decision (probably only his 12th worst of 2015) is right there on full display. Here’s Ben and the result of what I assume to be his decision to volunteer to be a human canvas on Ink Masters Jr.

I honestly think I used to have a Lisa Frank sticker that looked just like that.

What I don’t get is why he would lie about it. He must have known that being an actor who’s become paparazzi catnip for consistently delivering “sonnets of despair” with his face and body language in every shot, he’d eventually get caught in the lie. The only thing more embarrassing than being a 45-year-old divorcee who cheated with the nanny, rides a hog, and gets an amateurish clich├ęd back tattoo which is then universally mocked including by both of your exes, is to lie about said tattoo and later get caught. Cringe level: Gigli.
